Love is not something you do. It is what you are. A Course of Love gently guides you to the discovery of your true identity—who you have always been. This Course is not for the mind but for the heart, for the heart has the ability to learn in a new way. A way of direct knowing. (1)
The Christ in you is wholly human and wholly divine. As the wholly divine, nothing is unknown. As the wholly human, everything has been forgotten. Thus we begin to relearn the known as the One who already possesses all. It is this joining of the human and divine that ushers in love's presence, as all that caused you fear and pain falls away and you recognize again what love is. It is this joining of the human and divine that is your purpose here, the only purpose worthy of your thought. (2)
A Course of Love is a book for open-hearted and willing adventurers, lovers and risk-takers.
It is an invitation to abandon all you think you know, and to live into a constant coming to know, co-creating the new right here, right now. It’s time. Trust yourself. Hold on to nothing. Expect everything. You won’t be disappointed. (3)

As of March 02, 2020 and as the result of a round table discussion, we are simplifying our meeting process. The focus will still be on reading ACOL out loud, but the commentator or host of the current group will simply be a volunteer from the attending group that day. The leader may decide to open or close with a short reading selection, a 'check-in', a meditation or not. They will decide. We hope this will facilitate a more open forum of sharing and participation in which what needs to be known in each moment can be heard and responded to. The main focus will still be maintained as below:
RoundTable out loud reading of ACOL (you can simply listen if you want). We will read a chapter, sometimes less if a chapter is long, with discussion of what arises...the feelings coming up as a response, whatever they 'look' like, are in response to what is truly being given to you in that moment. They need to be honoured and respected as the teachers and messengers of your higher nature that they are. There may be times that we will watch a video clip or listen to an audio clip.
